A Cunning Plan (Sloane Harper #1)
by Astrid Arditi
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Age category: Adult
Release Date: 8 May, 2016
Determined to put her family back together, Sloane Harper stalks her ex husband and his annoyingly stunning mistress, Kate. And she’s not the only one. Handsome IRS agent Ethan Cunning is surveying them too, but not for the same reasons. He is attempting to nail Kate’s playboy boss.
Ethan and Sloane decide to help each other, which sends Sloane’s wobbly life spinning out of control. She’ll have to face danger, humiliation, and scariest of all, the dating scene, to lure her daughters’ father home.
Losing control was the best thing to happen to Sloane… until it turned lethal.

I do like to know what inspires writers and how they choose what genre to write. How they got started, etc.
Before being a writer, I was a reader and an avid one at that. From as early as I can remember, there always was a book on my nightstand, libraries full of magical novels in my house, literary conversations at the dinner table. I traveled to distant lands, real or imaginary, experienced my first kiss vicariously through Barbra Cartland’s heroines, trembled along Anne Frank and imagined a world full of colors with Helen Keller. I was shy, insecure, but when I read I got to be brave, adventurous – alive really.
Sloane Harper, my heroine, reminds me of the teenage girl I once was, although she is in her thirties, a mom and an abandoned wife. She’s everything I could have been had I not traveled, experienced life and grown in confidence in my twenties. She’s been so shielded all her life that her divorce comes as a tsunami, wreaking the comfortable life she’s spent the last ten years building for herself and her daughters.
Her story comes from my What ifs? questions. What if I had lived my life differently? What if I had married young without getting to know myself properly and had let other people make decisions for me? What if my husband left me now and I had to rebuild a life for my kids and myself? Would I crumble? Would I stand up and fight?
A Cunning Plan is the story of a woman and her path to self-fulfillment – funny, suspenseful, and sometimes moving. A story that raises the issues most women have to deal with. Hardships are sent Sloane’s way but like most women I know, she learns to cope with them, master them and hopefully, grows stronger for them. Sloane is brave, braver than I am, but I hope that in her situation I’d rise up to the challenge much like her. Because in every woman lies a heroine who just needs an occasion to shine.
